Wind Turbines by sarahtar

Here at my house, we don’t get significant amounts of wind. Though I’ve wished we COULD have a wind turbine, and I guess we certainly could have one, it just wouldn’t make much sense.

My mom’s house, on the other hand, out by West Glen, received wind All. The. Time. We never did any studies, but my amateur guess is that a wind turbine on her roof might have actually paid off.

During a time when we as a nation are trying to cut down on our dependence on fossil fuels, and especially foreign oil, many families – urban and rural – are looking into alternative energy sources for their own household. Not content to trust that the power company is doing all they can, and not necessarily trusting that the power company will always be there, or that they will always be able to afford the power company’s services, more and more families are thinking about solar panels, wind turbines, and the like.

So why a town like Waukee would be considering banning wind turbines is a bit of a surprise.

Hello,

I am a frequent visitor of your site and wanted to invite you to one of my favorite sites.

I am on a forum called The Dressing Room. It’s for all the moms, females out there who love to blog, or who want to start one, those who love photography, crafts, and also for all the WAHM’s. Basically we talk about all of our hobbies and help out other WAHM’s and businesses get their name out there.

We’d love to let you know about our advertising opportunities. We have very affordable advertising options starting as low as $5. If you’re interested, please join and take a look at our Announcements and WAHM forums where you’ll find the prices and how to move forward with advertising with us. We also love doing link exchanges.

Thanks,
Meghan
